The temples, 22 of which have survived because of their isolation at a site where there is neither a town nor an industry, were the outpourings of their creative genius over a hundred years from 950 to 1050AD. They are in three distinct groups, the main one being the Western group which includes the Kandariya Mahadev - the largest and most perfect, and the free-standing Chitragupta - the only one dedicated to Surya, the Sun God. The Eastern group includes some interesting Jain temples. These temples have been designed and carved to lead the eyes from ground level upward till you seem to be looking at heaven.
